Initial/recommended weight for counterweights?


How heavy are the common counterweights?(I know it still comes down to personal preference when it comes to the weight of it)

around 10gram is ideal




Actually, depends on the yo-yo.

There was a yo-yo’er by the name of Steve Brown who said that a 7 to 1 ratio is the ideal counterweight weight.


Right, so about 10g is good, correct? Because, most yoyos are in the 60s and thats about 6 to 1, which is close enough in my book.
